Jimmy Eat World

Coming off their disappointing last album the band had plenty of pressure on them to recreate their past success. Well, they've made a step forward with "Chase This Light". Wisely they used Butch Vig (drummer from Garbage, producer of such bands as Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, Nirvana) to produce the album and he guided them back towards their energetic pop rock sound. The band has an uncanny ability to create timeless music that does not succumb to trends and as a result will never go out of 'style'. As a band they are good musicians while still finding a way to remain accessible to us laymen. The album is still a radio-friendly mainstream effort, but at least it shows what the band is capable of.
